Good hotel with great breakfast and affordable snack menu - great to stay at as a base to explore local attractions like the Bandstand and shops. Good firm beds and nice pillows if that's your area - I stayed in family room with 2 kids and was very pleasant.

We've just stayed here for two nights, reception were friendly & helpful and our room (128) was clean and fairly recently repainted I would guess. The bed was very comfortable & the room of reasonable size, no problem as only a base to go out from. The bathroom was a little tired but then your only using it for, what,... More

Tiny room. Rubbish shower. doors shut at 11pm. Like something out of the 1970s. Don't go there . Get a better deal.oh! And very overpriced. Labyrinth like layout. Not at all like a modern hotel. Very disappointing. Dumb owners for not maxing out the rooms. Get an architect.

Lovely clean hotel. Had a family room which was very spacious. Lovely dinner and breakfast. Only thing wrong was the shower couldn't get the water temperature right. Would book again. Close to the pier with the beach just across the road. Would advise getting to Eastbourne early in the day as parking is difficult.

The hotel is centrally situated and very convenient with very friendly helpful staff. The room was very clean and the breakfast exceptionally good. The downsides are that the room was suitable for a single person not a couple and the bed was uncomfortable. The showerhead was broken. Too expensive for the room allocated.

Me and My Mum visit Eastbourne every year for mini breaks, just to shop and get away! The hotel just lacked life, no buzz. room ok, nothing to complain about or nothing to write home about. Love the outside pond. Stayed in better for same price. Breakfast was standard. No biscuits on tea tray :(

On arrival our impressions were what a lovely place, you enter via the restaurant, which is very clean modern & inviting. However not the same can be said for the rooms, very outdated & attention to detail is missing. Beds are quite old & tired decor is bland & boring. Very minimal furniture, no drawers and kitchen worktops are used... More
